The commands window allows you to define your own commands which can then be inserted to the log, scheduled in the AutoDJ or added to a cart so that the music scheduling software can schedule them.
So for example, PlayoutONE allows you to load a stream from the internet and play it out. This can be used for syndicated news feeds or just to include an MP3 that may be hosted on the web.
If this URL never changes then you can setup a pre-defined command from the commands window to call back at any time.
The predefined commands are based on PlayoutONE commands and to add one you simply choose a standard command from the dropdown, enter the custom parameters (like a URL from the STREAM LOAD command) then click the ‘Add’ button.
If you want to edit a command you’ve already entered then just double-click the command on the list and edit it.
You can remove predefined commands as well by selecting the ones to remove and clicking the trash can button.
When you’re happy with your changes then click ‘Save’ and if you would like to cancel your changes then click ‘Cancel’.
List Of Commands
